Abstract

Basics of biofilm kinetics were used to delineate regions of influent concentration and detention time which represent low, intermediate, and high loads. High loads are characterized mainly by a deep biofilm, while low loads are characterized by a shallow biofilm. The effects of process loading and microbial attachment on the reactor performance are studied with the help of mathematical analysis. Within the low load region, fluidized-bed reactors have a significant advantage for attaining low effluent concentrations. In the high load region, effluent concentrations become similar for all process types, as substrate flux is independent of biofilm thickness.
